You’ll be fishing from a powerful and restored 53’ Gary Davis offshore sport fishing boat. This huge vessel can comfortably sit up to 6 guests and it runs on two 800 HP Caterpillar engines.

Among the species you will target, there are Tuna, Marlin, King Mackerel, Goliath Grouper, Mahi Mahi, Swordfish, and more. You’ll use bottom and deep sea fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging, and kite fishing to catch them. Kids are welcome to join the trip and you’re free to take your catch home with you.

Captain Jonathan covers you for all the tackle, lures, as well as fishing licenses. Yours is just to bring the snacks and drinks of your choice.
